'Obscene' Gwen angers Muslims 01/08/2007 13:21 - (SA)

Los Angeles - Gwen Stefani could be forced to cancel her Malaysian show after a Muslim group branded her "indecent" and "obscene".

The singer, who is currently on the road with her Sweet Escape tour, is due to perform in Kuala Lumpur next month but the National Union of Malaysian Muslim Students want the concert scrapped because Gwen's image offends Islamic beliefs.

Mohamad Hilmi Ramli said: "Her video clips promoting the event are too obscene. We want the organisers to cancel the concert, failing which we will ask the authorities to intervene."

Ramli also slammed Malaysian cellphone company Maxis Communications for promoting Gwen's concert and exposing young Malaysians to "moral decay".

He fumed: "Maxis has been staging a series of foreign acts to make a profit and to expose our young generation to things such as moral decay."

Gwen's Kuala Lumpur show is due to take place at the Stadium Putra on August 21.

The singer will also perform in Australia, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, China and Hawaii before taking her tour to Europe. - Bang Showbiz.com

Maybe if Gwen Stefani mocked Islam directly. Of course THAT would get her killed. MUCH safer for Madonna to mock Christianity with a fake crucification. Such an artist! /sarc

Hmm...so, don’t go to the concert? No one is forcing these idiots to betray their religion, they seem to have a way of poking their religions nose into everything and then bitch,whine and moan.

This thread is useless without photos!

Actually, IMHO, Gwen Stephani is extremely beautiful, especially when she’s NOT wearing outrageous makeup and “fashions.” I’ve seen photos of her from before No Doubt really hit it big, and she’s really got a natural beauty.

She’s also got a wonderful voice, when she doesn’t try to be a “vocal stylist.”

JMHO, but it seems that she’s often just trying to be outrageous.

That’s one of the problems with them. They believe the entire world has to live according to their laws & standards. That’s the problem with religion in general-the idea that it has to be inflicted upon everyone whether the people like it or not. The idea of just leaving people alone who have different beliefs doesn’t exist in their sesame seed size minds.

No suprise. The big question is how she's doing in India.

Hate to think all those years wearing the bindi or dot didn't win her any good will.

Seriously, just wall off the Islamic world so they can’t hurt the rest of us, and let them rot.

Last time I saw GWAR they decapitated Mohammad in effigy.

Of course they pretty much decapitated everybody in effigy. Except for the ones the disemboweled.

Great show BTW. Thought I was gonna die in that crush.

"Fade" is a little too slow for me.

“Rage Boy” - what happens when a guy is born without a penis. Especially when hotties like Miss Stefani come around.

Muslim rage and the burkha thing may not be about Muslim men not able to restrain themselves, but their inability to avail themselves.

I love Rich Girls and Sweet Escape, but I guess I liked a lot more of her stuff in her No Doubt days.

BTW, if you liked No Doubt, check this band out.

Naah, they got ‘em, they just need to stop sticking them in the sheep, goats, little boys, or in bloodied battered females laying in the dirt covered in bedsheets from head to toe. Gwen’s a real woman, and they can’t handle it.

Actually they hate it when a Gwen Stefani comes around as they spend days afterwards cleaning the floors of the concert halls.

Gwen really should play it up and wear a burkha during her performances.
